Welcome Warrior Families! Winton Woods High School has transitioned into a New Tech Network school. Every student attending the WWHS main campus enrolled in College Prep, Honors or Advanced Placement courses will be attached to the Academy of Global Studies (AGS) or the New Tech Academy (NTA).
New Tech Network (NTN) is a non-profit organization that helps students gain the knowledge and deeper learning skills they need to succeed in life, college, and the careers of tomorrow. We work nationwide with schools, districts, and communities to provide services and support that enable schools to fundamentally re-imagine teaching and learning.
Project-based learning is at the heart of our instructional approach. In project-based learning, learning is contextual, creative, and shared. Students collaborate on projects that require critical thinking and communication. By making learning relevant to them in this way, student engagement reaches new levels. This higher level of engagement is associated with better educational outcomes.
The smart use of technology supports our innovative approach to instruction and culture. All classrooms have a one-to-one computing ratio. With access to web-enabled computers and the latest in collaborative learning technology, every student becomes a self-directed learner who no longer needs to rely on teachers or textbooks for knowledge and direction. We use Echo, an online learning management system, to create a vibrant network which helps students, teachers, and parents connect to each other and to student projects across the country.
Finally, each New Tech school maintains a culture that promotes trust, respect, and responsibility. At New Tech schools, students and teachers alike have exceptional ownership of the learning experience and their school environment. Working on projects and in teams, students are accountable to their peers and acquire a level of responsibility similar to what they would experience in a professional work environment.
We are extremely excited about the opportunities that exist for our students here at Winton Woods High School. Please enjoy navigating our school website, and as always, “Go Warriors!”
